Proper casting is a critical part of any film project.  The casting call and auditions process is your opportunity to discover the people who will bring your script to life.  It is also a chance to set the tone for your actors in preparation for the collaborative work you are about to embark on together.  Learn how to communicate your talent search to agents, managers, and unsigned talent, and create strong first impressions with a professional audition.
